Acclaimed Santa Barbara architect Peter Edwards built the single-story residence at 2010 Las Tunas Road in 1957 as his personal home.

The midcentury-modern dwelling underwent a recent renovation by local firm Salt Architecture.

A small partition between the brick fireplace and small set of stairs creates a partial divide between the sunken living room and the dining area. 

The open kitchen overlooks the nearby living/dining areas. In addition to updated appliances, the spacious cooking area includes a long, U-shaped countertop positioned around a central island.

The concealed refrigerator/freezer blends in with the dark-wood cabinetry throughout the kitchen and bar area. Sliding glass doors connect the space to the backyard.

The 2,763-square-foot home includes four bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths.

A double-sink vanity sits near a large, walk-in shower with a built-in bench and freestanding tub in the principal bath. 

Salt Architecture installed new floors and windows throughout the home.

Walls of windows connect the various living spaces to the mountainous Santa Barbara landscape.

The flat-roofed home sits on a 1.9-acre lot with a landscaped yard that offers a built-in barbecue, firepit, and multiple patios. There is also a detached art studio behind the carport.
